Leeds fans on Twitter call for Forshaw to start on Saturday

Leeds fans on Twitter call for Forshaw to start on Saturday

On Wednesday night against Ipswich Town, Adam Forshaw stood out for The Whites. His performance from midfield off the bench was first class and it wasn’t long after he came on that Leeds doubled their lead. Owing to that, the fans are now calling for him to replace Samu Saiz against Forest on tomorrow.

Samu Saiz has really failed to impress as of late and it was really telling that he wasn’t up to his usual levels when Pablo Hernandez came back in and started bossing things last night. Because of that, plenty of The Whites would happily see Saiz drop out of the eleven in favour of Forshaw for the visit of Aitor Karanka’s Nottingham Forest in Saturday’s late kick-off in the Championship.

Forshaw joined Leeds back in January this year from Middlesbrough and so far he’s failed to really put down a marker and make himself one of the first names on the team sheet at Elland Road. After Wednesday night, though, Marcelo Bielsa may see something in the 27-year and give him a run of starts, which could see them elevate their performances as they try to lock down the top spot in the Championship.

The Whites will be keen to see Forshaw given a start tomorrow and the rest would probably do Saiz good as he aims to get back to his best.
